Portable tire inflator

Was wondering if anyone knows of a portable tire compressor that will inflate RV tires at 100 psi.
Recently got a nail in tire with a slow leak and found out the hard way that the normal tire compressors at most gas stations cannot inflate RV high pressure tires.
In addition, makes it difficult if discover a low tire and far away from a truck stop with the appropriate air compressor.

Any suggestions?

Craig

I use a Viair 400P-RV and it works extremely well. Here is a link form RV Geeks about the compressor.

I carry a Porter Cable pancake compressor. Up to 150 PSI with no problems. Works great for inflating tires and by reducing the pressure blowing out water lines prior to winterization.

Here's the one I've used for 5 years or so. I picked it up at Home Depot, IIRC. It fits in the toolbox in the bed of the truck and can handle the tires on our 5th wheel that require up to 120 PSIG - I believe it's rated 155 PSIG.

I'll be ordering the VIAIR P/n 10005 compressor and tank. I'm going the mount compressor in truck bed and the tank might get mounted under bed to frame. Then I'll mount Air Horns and blow the Dumb drivers out of my way...LOL!

I don't believe you can go wrong with the Viair. Other people have had success with other portable and 110v compressors. For my money, the Viair took up a lot less room to store and is a quality product.
